Seattle: The successful launch of new operating system Windows 7 propelled Microsoft to record revenue in the fourth quarter of 2009, the software giant reported Thursday.

Microsoft reported net income of $6.7 billion, a 60 percent increase on the year prior, while revenue rose 18 percent to $19 billion.

"This is a record quarter for Windows units," Kevin Turner, Microsoft's chief operating officer, said in a news release. "We are thrilled by the consumer reception to Windows 7 and by business enthusiasm to adopt Windows 7."

The company said it sold more than 60 million Windows 7 licenses in the second quarter, making the operating system Microsoft's fastest-selling in history. That helped the company's Windows and

Windows Live division rack up $6.9 billion in revenue, an increase of about a third over the period a year earlier.

But Microsoft's entertainment division, which includes its Xbox business, saw revenue fall from $3.3 billion to $2.9 billion, while its Business Division's revenue also tapered from $4.88 billion to $4.74 billion.

8: its a microsoft strategy. windows XP was too good. then Microsoft launches Windows vista and stop supporting Windows XP with PC/laptop maufacturer.so user was forced to go for Windows vista a really worst OS ever been made.
Now user is frustated and moreover microsoft has created a loby with major DELL, LENOVO to provide with windows 7 as inbuild OS. so user is forced to buy this coz he is really frustated with vista experience.
but this kind of strategy wont work in long. each sun has a sunset and if microsoft doesnot wake up.will face a sunset

Yes you're right 'mrit', I feel cheated by Microsoft, as we're forced to buy the OS which comes with the laptop, as the price is included in that of the laptop. When they know that their actual goal was to developing Windows7 after XP, its just to make some extra money by launching Windows Vista in between of it. This the most stupid OS I've ever seen. I think Microsoft must've lost much as that of making much profit out of Vista. I wonder if Microsoft would give free upgrade to all those licensed Vista OS users, as they're running in losses investing their precious money on it. Thanx.

I agree with you but if we compared Windows 7 with Vista. It is better OS till now after Windows XP. But XP has also set a record of being better OS in history and refuses to die. It seems that Windows 7 will also follow the XP path and will become better OS in history.
